Barcelona agree deal for goalkeeper Bravo

The 31-year-old, currently captaining Chile at the FIFA World Cup, will provide competition for fellow close-season arrival Marc-Andre ter Stegen.

Barcelona were in need of goalkeeping recruits following the departure of long-serving first-choice Victor Valdes and understudy Jose Manuel Pinto.

Bravo featured in all but one of Sociedad's La Liga matches last season, helping them to a seventh-place finish.

His new club will be seeking to improve on a poor campaign that saw them finish without a major trophy, leading Gerardo Martino to leave his role as coach after just one season.
